Artist's Description

Get Well: From our Christian Masterpiece Collection #GW1900 Gethsemane by Carl Heinrich Bloch (1834–1890). Bloch was a Danish painter born in Copenhagen and studied with Wilhelm Marstrand at the Royal Danish Academy of Art there. Bloch’s only interest was drawing and painting, and he was consumed by the idea of becoming an artist. He went to Italy to study art, passing through the Netherlands, where he became acquainted with the work of Rembrandt, a major influence on him. His early work featured rural scenes from everyday life. From 1859 to 1866, Bloch lived in Italy, and this period was important for the development of his historical style. His first great success was the exhibition of his “Prometheus Unbound” in Copenhagen in 1865. He was then commissioned to produce 23 paintings for the Chapel at Frederiksborg Palace; scenes from the life of Christ which have become very popular as illustrations including The Sermon on the Mount. The originals, painted between 1865 and 1879, are still displayed there. His death from Cancer came as “an abrupt blow for Nordic art” according to Sophus Michaelis who also wrote, “Denmark has lost the artist that indisputably was the greatest among the living." A prominent Danish art critic, Karl Madsen, stated that Carl Bloch reached higher toward the great heaven of art than all other Danish art up to that date, and “If there is an Elysium where the giant, rich, warm and noble artist souls meet, there Carl Bloch will sit among the noblest of them all.”
